Jellow Communicator is a friendly Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) app that uses icons/images to enable speech. This speech communicator can be used by those learning to speak or those having difficulty with speech.
Jellow is developed at the IDC School of Design at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay located in Mumbai.
A novel Visual Emotional Language Protocol (VELP) was conceived in order to enhance the language ability of Jellow. VELP represents the 6 core expressive icons of the interface. Using these core buttons, the child can communicate their likes, dislikes, and needs with others.
Jellow has an easy-to-learn interface and visually appealing icons. The application is optimized for Android tablets.
Jellow is currently available in 2 versions – an Indian version and an international version. The Indian version of the app is available in English and Hindi. The international version of Jellow allows the user to switch between American and British accents.
